Slideshow: Subsurface 2012



Labor Day weekend marked the 10th anniversary of Subsurface, an annual gathering of graffiti artists from across the nation. The Indianapolis-hosted event serves as a venue for artists to not only paint new works, but as a chance for those in the graffiti community separated by geographic boundaries to reunite.

Crews of artists, or "writers" as they refer to themselves, came from as far away as New York City and Seattle, Washington, to attend.

The Fountain Square area was a major hub for activity this year. Several crews painted on South Palmer Street as well. The American Tent and Awning building on Palmer and the Koch building across from it have served as an unofficial home for the event since 2004.

Intermittent rain caused off and on delays throughout the weekend. Nonetheless, many colorful and interesting pieces found their way onto Indianapolis walls.
